Programme Committees

Programme Committees

Programme committees allow students to exercise their rights to participate in university decision-making. Every programme of study at the university has a corresponding programme committee.

The programme committees at the Amsterdam Law School are the:

  • Programme Committee on Bachelor of Law
  • Programme Committee on Tax Law – Bachelor & Master
  • Programme Committee on Dutch-taught Master’s Programmes
  • Programme Committee on the English-taught Master’s Programmes
  • Programme Committee on PPLE

The first committee consists of five students and four instructors. The second committee consists of four students and four instructors. The Committees on Dutch- and English-taught Master Programmes consist of one student and one instructor from each of the master’s programmes. The dean appoints student-members to committees for a one-year period, after which time they may be re-appointed. Instructors are appointed by the dean for a two-year period, after which time they may be reappointed.

Each programme committee has the following responsibilities:

  • To advise the director of the study programme, the dean and the student council on all educational matters in the relevant study programme;
  • To give advice on the Education and Exam regulations published in the study guides;
  • To assess how the study programmes implement the Education and Exam Regulations.

Before the programme committee issues any formal advice, it must inform the director of the relevant study programme in writing and meet with the programme director and the dean. The programme director will in turn keep the committee informed about all relevant decisions having to do with curriculum, education and exam procedures, and the quality of education and instructors.
